Great geological phenomenon May 01, 2010
It was 1.5. and we have a free weekend. We took a rent-a-car and go to little trip. From Belgrade to Kursumlija we took a highway Belgrade-Nis, and from town Pojate turn to old rusty road: Krusevac, Kursumlija, Rudare, Devil's town.Just about 30 km South-West away from Kursumlija, on the massive of Radan.

We had to leave our car about a 1 km from entries to Devil's town. was OK, after all, we need some stratch after that uncomfortable roadtrip.

In our guide there was a text: " Two rare natural phenomena at the same spot: 202 stone formations created by erosion, between two and 15 meters in height and the middle diameter of under 1 m, topped by stone blocks weighing as much as 100 kg, appearing unreal and yet lasting for centuries, and two springs of extremely acid water (pH 1,5) with high mineral content (15 g/l; content of some elements even 1000 times as high as in ordinary drinking waters) make Djavolja Varos a true wonder of nature.

This place unique in Europe had been known only by some specialties, still today, in spite of the efforts of the municipality to expose it worldwide still few tourists visit this astonishing site."

And if you ask me: I was stunned. I have that need to climb all over the site, and to take as many pictures as possible :)

Ticket entries is 250 RSD, or 2.5 euros.
